    I hate these kinds of cards

    If Bagwell was alone on a card with a ptch like this, numbered to this, it would be a 75-100 dollar card. But add Griffey and Pujols, and its astronomically priced. I hate it when players share cards. Am i alone in thinking this?

    I hate it too. The only multi player cards I somewhat like are of players all on the same team.

    I actually kinda like the combo players cards. Only problem for me is that I hardly ever agree with the player choices.

    I'd like to see a combo card of the same player, three different pictures, three different jerseys!

    I like the combo cards only when they are teammates or play same position. What's the connection with Griffey, Bags and Pujols? Another one would be starting all star outfielders otherwise they should be on the same team.

    Eh, maybe a $50 card with Bagwell solo. But yeah, I get your point. It can be pure hell trying to land rare stuff with big time players on it.

    50/50 on these sometimes they are cool other times not so much. The serial number is also one of Griffeys jersey numbers as a red. That hurts Bags an Albert collectors...

    I like this idea, if he played for different teams. Take a Griffey, put in a swatch from the Mariners, Reds, and White Sox. That would be cool to see.

    Or

    Take Bagwell, Use the Rainbow Jersey pre 94, the Blue and gold 94-99, and Brick/pinstripes from 2000-06... That would make for a cool card as well.

    It's a love/hate relationship. Love the card, hate the price.

    I think the biggest opposition to that type of card is from the person who collects a "lesser" player featured on the card and either has to "overpay" to own it or loses out to a bigger budget star player/set collector.

    I think just about every collector has at least one of these cards out there and some are unlucky enough to have more. I cringe ever time I see a new checklist with a multiplayer card with a better player on it. Garvey has been paired with the likes of Koufax, Murray, McCovey, Mattingly, R. Henderson, Gwynn, J. Robinson, Hodges, A.Pujols and others on high end cards. Some I have a chance to own, others i will not.

    Agreed.I'm a team collector for the most part, so I seldom pursue cards with players on teams I don't care about.

    Years ago Topps made a dual on card autograph in Bowman's Best of Rodriguez and Ripkin.You know there are die hard Ripkin collectors who shelled out big money for that and cringe when they see a steroid user on the same card as a classy player like Ripkin.That sucks.

    Indeed. I wonder what the Cal Ripken collectors think about it as well...

    I remember seeing that card on the sell sheet or Beckett ad, and thought to myself "what an awesome card that would be to own".I would think it would hurt value as well.I know I wouldn't bid as much on it.

    There is another card in the set all signed on card by Bonds, Ripkin, and Rodriguez.Another card that undoubtedly cost hundreds once upon a time.
